Provides an online resource of genomic data for key blood flukes (genus Schistosoma). SchistoDB integrates whole-genome sequence (WGS) and annotation of three species of the genus and provides enhanced bioinformatics analyses and data-mining tools. This database supplies access and visualization of the Schistosoma mansoni genome and features, integrated to other data types such as expressed sequence tags (ESTs), proteins and metabolic pathways.
